A Few More Details...

INFO YOU'LL WANT TO KNOW

Here's the deal. If photography is just something you just want to cross off your wedding checklist, we might not be the best fit for each other. Not that choosing bridesmaid dresses or napkins aren't important. But when the cake is eaten, the flowers dried, and the rentals returned, your photos will be the only thing you get to keep for years to come to remember all the details and emotions from that beautiful day. You want to invest in what will last and withstand the sands of time, right? Of course you do.

Many couples regretfully admit post-wedding that they wished they had invested more in photography as it is the only thing left after the wedding that truly captures and preserves all the memories and emotion. I don't just click a button on my camera and call it a day. I want you to feel comfortable with my photography and artistic style so that I can get in close and capture all the fleeting candid moments, the tears, the laughs, the in-between looks.

If this sounds like your cup of tea and exactly what you want from your wedding, let's talk! Shoot me a message and I'll send over my full collection page for you to browse through. Additional photographers, albums, and extra hours are available for purchase in packages. All services and products are subject to the required 7.25% California sales tax.

Prices are subject to change without notice. The only way to lock in on current prices is to pay the 50% retainer fee with a signed contract.

Frequntly Asked Questions

FAQ

01.

Can you travel for weddings?

I'd travel the world for you.
Literally.

Traveling is good for the soul and love is good for the heart. Put both of them together where I get to travel to witness and document your day of love, and viola! you'll have me dancing in gleeful ecstasy. Tell me where you're at and let's make the magic happen! I'll create a custom destination package for you.

02.

Why should I hire you?

You should book me if you like my work and you like my personality, simple as that. Your photographer will be the person you'll be spending the most of amount of time with on your wedding day (even more than your future spouse!). It'd be awful if you had to spend all day with someone you didn't get along with, now wouldn't it? Goshdarnnit, you deserve someone you love!

Same goes for me as the photographer. I want to work with people I genuinely click with. It makes the job more fun :)

If my charming personality wins you over, then by all means, let's do this!

03.

What kind of photographer are you?

A natural light photographer.
And also the one you probably need. *subtle wink

Other than that, I'm in my element when I am a quiet documentary photographer observing the room and anticipating fleeting moments before it even happens. It’s those small, quiet moments that would be unnoticed by the bride and groom that I cherish most at weddings. My top priority is to get you in your best moments with gorgeous lighting. That also means helping with posing. I want you to see yourself confident, beautiful, fierce, and loved. You want both the picture perfect poses and the candid and intimate moments that can’t ever be planned or posed. I'll get you at your best angle so that even if you're ugly-crying while reading your vows, you'll still look beautiful and radiant and get the warm fuzzy feelings looking back years from now.

04.

What's your editing style?

You'll notice that all my wedding photos are bright, vibrant, and warm, full of light and joy, with a touch of elegance. It's your wedding day and you will remember yourself through my eyes as someone who was and is radiant, beautiful, loved, and dazzling. There will always be a touch of magic and light. If that's what you're looking for, I'm your girl!

05.

How do we book you?

Fill out my contact form to check my availabilities and also so I can get to know you! Once we decide that we're a good fit for each other, I'll send over an electronic contract for you to sign. I also require a 50% retainer fee to reserve your wedding date. I won't be officially booked for your date until the contact is signed and retainer fee is paid. All bookings will be based on a first-come, first-serve basis so if you want to me reserve the date to document your day, don't wait too long! The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your wedding date. All services and products are subject to the required 7.25% California sales tax.
Prices are subject to change without notice. The only way to lock in on current prices is to pay the 50% retainer fee with a signed contract.

06.

Should I do a first-look?

Personally, I love when couples do first-look. It's the moment of quiet happiness and joy, just basking in each other's presence before the wedding whirlwind really starts. No one to perform for, just you and your lover (and me, your professional third-wheeler). Intimate, romantic, sweet, and emotional...sounds pretty amazing, wouldn't you agree?

07.

How soon do I get my photos back?

For portraits sessions, I have a 3-week turnaround. For weddings and other events, you will be getting your photos within 6-8 weeks, depending on if it's during the busy wedding season or not.

08.

Why does it take so long to get my photos back?

Each photographer has their own way of running their business and delivering their photos. I take my time to carefully edit your photos while juggling other wedding galleries and I take short breaks to come back with fresh eyes so that you receive my very best. Please be patient with me as I edit away. Your photos, your memories matter to me. My editing style is very personalized as I tend to hand-edit to produce that "wow" factor. I take care with each image and triple-review the galleries before sending it off to you. I do try to aim delivering the gallery sooner but the delivery time will be completely dependent on how busy the wedding season is so I don't want to overpromise and risk disappointment. Rest assured, your gallery will be delivered within the promised 6-8 weeks!

09.

How many photos will we get after the wedding?

For weddings, you will be getting about 50-100 photos per hour. For portrait sessions, you will be getting about 25-40 images, more or less. Please note that the number of photos per hour varies on different factors such as the size of the wedding. These are rough estimates as I try to focus more on quality moments to tell your story. All packages will include a gallery link for you to view and download your High-Resolution, carefully-edited photos. Additional prints from a trusted print lab can be purchased through the gallery link.

10.

Do you offer a la carte?

Yes indeed! All packages are highly customizable. Shoot me a message with details on what you need and I'll send over a custom quote.

Kind Words

FROM HAPPY CLIENTS

When preparing for our wedding and choosing a photographer to capture that special day, I immediately thought of Cori. Her artistic perspective is what I wanted for the photos. I didn’t want photos to just capture the image of people, but to capture each moment throughout our wedding. Cori did a wonderful job in capturing our joy, excitement, and laughters. I also love seeing the photos of our family and friends and how it captured their emotions during our ceremony and reception. When you are the bride and the groom, you do not see what is going on among the guests. As we looked through our photos, I saw tears of joy and excitement among our friends and family. Cori uses all her surroundings and integrates them into capturing the moment. She used the lights in the reception hall to bring the best side of me (the bride) and the handsome side of my husband! Our family members told us that we look like models in the pictures!
